Installing Foobar with Darkone skin

2014-10-10 - Foobar

Just to show you how easy it is to get the best audio player with the most fancy skin installed in seconds:

Get Foobar here:


Get Darkone V4.0 theme here:   >> Latest one is:

First remove any previous install (remove all directory) of Foobar.

Next do fresh install as follows:

  • Install foobar (latest version is 1.3.4)
  • Do not start it.
  • Rename the downloaded Darkone *.bck file to .exe and install with defaults.
  • Start Foobar, and select Columns UI as interface
  • Restart Foobar
  • Go File, Preferences, Display, Columns UI, and in the right side you will see “FCL importing…”
  • Click import, and browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000\themes\DarkOne_v4.0\DarkOne v4.0.fcl
  • Let it import, and restart Foobar

And that should mostly be it.

Next rebuild your library, and fine tune the theme following the added help file.


Please refer to the full topic on wiki:

friend-to-friend (or F2F) computer network is a type of peer-to-peer network in which users only make direct connections with people they know. Passwords or digital signatures can be used for authentication.

Unlike other kinds of private P2P, users in a friend-to-friend network cannot find out who else is participating beyond their own circle of friends, so F2F networks can grow in size without compromising their users’ anonymity. RetroshareWASTEGNUnetFreenet and OneSwarm are examples of software that can be used to build F2F networks, though RetroShare is the only one of these configured for friend-to-friend operation by default.

Many F2F networks support indirect anonymous or pseudonymous communication between users who do not know or trust one another. For example, a node in a friend-to-friend overlaycan automatically forward a file (or a request for a file) anonymously between two friends, without telling either of them the other’s name or IP address. These friends can in turn automatically forward the same file (or request) to their own friends, and so on.

From Peer-to-Peer, to Friend-to-Friend

The U2Hub has been running since April 2003. That is 11 years of U2Bootleg Sharing.
Back in the “old days” it was a big group of enthusiastic fans that joined, more then 100 each week. Sometimes just to have a peak of what it was, and a lot simply found it to difficult, or to slow, or to cumbersome, or simply not safe enough. Others found their way to new formats like torrents and or exotic places like usenet. Now this many years later it is time to re-activate all those people who think that u2 bootleg file sharing community is fun and should always be available. That is is nice to talk about or chat about as they call it nowadays, to write about, to be fanatic in.

The U2Hub as it is running now has those features, you can chat, you can share. But it is slowly becoming obsolete. Safety is an issue. Management is an issue. Complexity is an issue.

Now that I have moved to a different part of the world, and life has changed a bit for me it has become impossible to self manage the hub, this is one of the reasons I am handing control back to you. And yes I realize that if this does not kick of, it is either back to the old fashioned way of “Direct Connect” or stop the whole effort. I think though that when you keep on exploring the sharing options you might think different.

It is just a different interface with a different way of login, nothing much more.

Let us try it out, and yes, the u2hub (direct connect) will always be there running as backup.
